A PCBU will translate a range of WHS materials to prevent communication breakdowns and risks among non-English-speaking workers, and contribute $50,000 to a regulatory campaign, after it was accused of WHS breaches resulting in glass falling on a public street.
A PCBU accused of fall-related breaches has committed to developing and certifying a safety management system against AS/NZS ISO 45001, under a $274,000 WHS undertaking in which much of the spend will go towards initiatives that mature safety organisations already have.
In a $586,000 WHS undertaking, a PCBU has launched a research study into effectively communicating the key "high-risk messages" in safe work method statements, following an incident resulting from SWMS-compliance failures on the first working day of the year in 2018.
A PCBU has committed to completely digitising its permit-to-work system to strengthen its effectiveness as a critical control for non-standard work, while a second PCBU will audit its mobile plant and traffic management plans across multiple sites, in response two serious safety incidents.
An employer is implementing a safety communication system that will allow workers to send photographs, videos and proposed work processes to engineers for "instant risk assessment", as part of a $541,000 enforceable undertaking.
An employer has introduced a new injury management database for identifying client sites that pose extra risks to workers, and introduced site-specific pre-employment medicals, among $782,000 worth of rectifications made after a serious incident.
A PCBU has committed to creating a WHS management role and other initiatives, after a first-year apprentice fell nearly four metres through a void. Meanwhile, a regulator has issued a warning to rogue electrical operators, highlighting a recent court injunction and a $100,000 fine.
A WHS regulator has accepted a second PCBU's second attempt to enter a safety undertaking in lieu of prosecution, despite the latest applicant's long history of compliance issues and statutory notices.
